Transport Back to the Old West at the Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum
Nothing puts life in perspective like marveling at the feats of a true Colorado icon. In his time bringing the West to the masses with his famous Wild West show, Buffalo Bill came to love the Colorado landscape and Lookout Mountain in particular. That’s why he chose to be buried there, and when you see the view from yourself, we think you’ll see why.
The Buffalo Bill Museum offers a glimpse of the exciting times that passed. If it sets your or your youngsters’ hearts alight, the same spirit for adventure may just live on in some form or fashion.
Explore the Thrilling Rides at Lakeside Amusement Park
Feeling the need for speed – but hoping to share your love of thrills at a pace the whole family can enjoy? Then if you haven’t yet visited Lakeside Amusement Park, you’re missing out. It features a generous assortment of low- and medium-intensity rides, and it’s the perfect way to give the kids a little boost of adrenaline and courage!
Take the family on the bumper cars, have a good-natured competition at the carnival games, or watch the little ones enjoy the mini train. There’s also no shortage of heart-thumping classics for the big kids, like the tilt-a-whirl and the historic cyclone rollercoaster (which we recommend taking after sundown, so you can enjoy the park in its full neon regalia).
